Found May 13, 2013 on NESN.com:
The Eagles may want to invest in name tags with all the money they’ve saved from canceling “taco Tuesday” and “fast food Friday.” LeSean McCoy was calling rookie quarterback Matt Barkley “Mark” at practice on Monday. And it wasn’t some lame hazing attempt, the All-Pro running back really thought that was the rookie quarterback’s name. If McCoy is calling one of the most famous college football players of 2012 the wrong name, draft picks like Zach Ertz, Earl Wolff and Bennie Logan stand no chance of being referred to correctly by the Eagles Pro Bowler. They might as well get used to the names Zeke, Earnest and Bernard now. LeSean McCoy has been calling Matt Barkley "Mark" all day. Said he actually thought the name was Mark. Guess he doesn't watch much Pac-12— Zach Berman (@ZBerm) May 13, 2013
